Mumbai-based social impact organisation Population First, which works for women empowerment and gender equality, has announced its ‘Call for Entries’ for the 10th Laadli Media and Advertising Awards for Gender Sensitivity (LMAAGS) 2020. The date for receiving entries is 30th June 2020.


Said Dr A L  Sharada, Director, Population First: “From mere 100 entries in 2007 to more than 1500 entries in 2017, Laadli Media Awards have come a long way in acknowledging the media’s contribution in women empowerment and gender issues. The increasing volume of discussion in public domain on gender issues is an indication that we are witnessing the beginnings of change. These awards facilitate engagement of journalists with gender issues and we are happy to note that our various interventions have resulted in more coverage from gender perspective over the years across media.”


Over 800 awards across 14 languages in print, electronic, radio and web categories have been presented to media and advertising professionals from across the country since 2007.


Added Dr Sharada: “Considering the popularity of OTT streaming sites & applications, an award for a Web Series is also introduced this year.  Also, two new and popular awards are being introduced in the General Entertainment segment for the Most Inspiring Woman Protagonist and Best Episode with a positive message on a gender issue”, she informed. A special award for Best Reporting on Covid-19 from a gender perspective is also being introduced in this edition.
